Yeah. Jones got a taste on that first leg kick and quickly realized that he could get knocked out at will.

So he stayed on the outside. I thought he should have taken Santos down and hellbowed his face into pulp.

He got a gift with that decision.

The UFC is pushing his brand HARD so its not a surprise.


He sells PPVs. His are usually really good. Santos as champ would be less $$$ to Zuffa and he wouldn’t last very long at that top anyway.

Is that fair? No.

Such is life.

The next morning Ben was asked how he was feeling and he said he was feeling great and looking forward to his fight with Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239.

way or the other, just an observation from an outsider.


it wasnt a lucky shot. he trained for it. just like with grappling people don't see all the setup for the submission, just the submission where the other guy just got caught. striking has similar technical merit.


that being said, yves edwards said that masvidal has like d1 wrestling skill and was prepared if it went to the ground. he's one of the saviest fighters out there

No, he intended to hit him with the right knee from the get go.

That’s how the flying knee is done. Left knee comes up first followed by the striking knee.

not all flying knees have the switch.

here's one without a switch

the switch works well against dumb wrestlers like askren who will predictibaly go for the first knee thrown and now see the second one coming.

Yoel was in close. Not enough room for the “switch”. Either way that’s how Yoel does it....
